More Havana Cards with Rae

Happy Saturday, friends!

Today I’m sharing more cards that I made using the card kit featuring the Prima Marketing Havana collection. I LOVE the colors!

So I made two cards very similar in the way that I designed them. This first one is a 6×6 square, so it’s rather large.

I started with cutting my layers- the Kaisercraft cardstock is slightly darker, completely complimentary to the greens in the Havana papers. The white layers are die cuts- I used the Kaisercraft border die from the kit, and a floral die from my stash.

I added faux stitching to all of the paper layers with a sewing wheel, paper piercer and fine tip black marker, which you can see clearer in the closeup below.

I added some pretty crystals from my stash, as well as some black and white splatters  of India ink to complete the look. The chalk inks I used were Tsukinedo Dew Drop in Ocean Oasis, and the pink is Old Rose from Prima Marketing.

 

Here’s another card I made using the same design concepts, but I added some die cuts from dies in my stash.

Havana Cards and the Card Sketch with Rae

Happy Saturday, craft people!

Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards I made with the August card kit, and, I used the first Tres Jolie card sketch designed by owner Kim Heard. Look at how beautiful it is:

I do love to make cards, but I usually get carried away with the bulkiness of embellishments, so I usually just stick them in a box or a gift bag, and these ones are no exception! ūüôā Here are two I made based on the sketch:

Both cards were made using the same design. I started with two layers and added some distressing and chalk ink from my stash. The green is a Tsukinedo Dew Drop ink pad in Ocean Oasis, and the Pink is the Prima Old Rose one. I used both chalk inks on the tickets, banners, and the green on the Kaisercraft wood doilies as well.

I added some a doily and some floral die cuts that I cut from the Prima Havana papers. I also added some Dusty Attic chipboard coins (“Smile” on this card, and “Cherish” on the other one.) from my stash. I wanted them to look like pennies so I added some copper wax paste and the green chalk inkl.

To finish off the cards, I added some black and white splatters of India ink.

Here’s the other card- same design, just different papers, and slightly different elements.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month. Details here in the Facebook community.

Card sketch

Hey everyone, it’s Kim. Today I am sharing the cards I made using the card kit and the sketch. I have to say, I’m not the best with cards, so it was good to have a sketch to follow. I’m not sure how that works though. I can create a sketch, but can’t create a card from scratch. Oh well, moving on.

Have you seen our card kit this month? It is amazing!! It features papers from Prima, a die and lots of fun embellishments. Take a look:

There are still  few kits available. You can do a single purchase here or you can subscribe here.

Here is the card sketch for the challenge this month. Make sure you join in on the fun. Post your entry for the card challenge in our Facebook Cafe.

You don’t have to be a kit subscriber to enter, just please don’t enter using products from another kit club.

Here are my takes on the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here is that pretty die and my flower cluster. I used the banner tag in the cluster for my sentiment instead of on the bottom.

For my center image on this card, I used the die cut twice and added the wood doily as the main piece. Then I added smaller flowers to accent it.

I love the bakers twine in the kit. The colors are perfect for this bright summery card kit. Plus there is plenty of card stock to make several cards or tags.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Forever Memories ~ Mixed Media Layout By Heather Thompson

I made another fun page from our recent trip over seas with the card kit, so  many more things you can make than just cards, why not a full layout page. This is a photo from our trip overseas,  my great friend Laneen and I eating at a little sidewalk cafe along in the wonderful city of Arnhem. These are truly forever memories. Tres Jolie Layout July 2018.jpg

I made a video of how this all came to be. I altered the photo to make it more vintage looking, and just went to town on putting it all together

Here are a few more close-ups.

“#beautiful” Layout with Rae using for the Mood Board Challenge

Hello, and Happy Wednesday!

Today I’m sharing a layout I made for the Mood Board Challenge using the July kit.

Here’s the mood board:

I chose to use some of the Lemoncraft Violet Silence paper that had pink flowers on it to coordinate with the hot pink Kaisercraft flowers. I was inspired by the polka dot fabric in one of the mood board pictures, so I repeated the use of circles by adding a circle stencil, a doily, a piece of Lemoncraft flair, polka dot paper, and adding dots to the chipboard frame (from my stash) and some purple and green berries (also from my stash).

I tore apart the 49 and Market ivory flowers and added the Kaisercraft hot pink flowers to make those pink flowers POP. I also added some pink chalk ink to the ivory flowers.

This closeup below gives a good view of the paper layers, and shows how the flower cluster and leaves, as well as the pink lace chipboard are a contrast to the softness of the hues of the papers.

The frame under the picture is a Dusty Attic chipboard frame from my stash, but really, any oval frame would do the job here. I painted it white, added some purple pigment ink for a distressed look to blend with the papers, and added accents with the Nuvo drops from the kit. If you haven’t had the chance to try Nuvo drops, you NEED to! They are self-leveling, so they will dry dimensional, but not uneven.

 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you get a chance to join us for the mood board challenge! You do not have to be a subscriber to join the fun, but if you wanted to use the July kit, there are still some available HERE.

Large Vintage Tag By Heather Thompson

Using the Kaisercraft paper pack from the card Kit I made this large vintage tag using the large tags from Creative Embellishments . Lost of layers and and some softening of the flowers and I got a vintage look I was aiming for.

Vintage Tag July 2018

Using various products from the card kit, and the Kaiser Craft Paper Pack, I cut elements out to add to the tag. Here is a video for you to see how this all came together.

Here are a few more close-ups.

Quick & Easy Greeting cards by Phyllis

Hi Crafty Friends,  Phyllis here to share my last project for Tres Jolie using the June Card Kit.   I decided to do some simple cards!  I used the same design on both cards but different papers.

You can see step by step with pictures how I created these cards!

I began by using my paper punch and cutting some flowers out from Fabscraps paper pack.  I did this with 2 different paper patterns and then layered them.

Here is the layered flowers.  Then from my stash I added some flatback pearl beads to the center of the flower.

Next I used Kaisercraft’s Doily stamp and Kaisercraft green ink pad from the card kit,¬† randomly stamped on Kaisercraft’s White premium cardstock that measures 6×6.¬† I also used the lavender ink pad for the other card,¬† same process.

Once the stamping was finished I cut out some tags from Fabscraps and added some twine from my stash.

In the Fabscraps paper pack you will find some diecuts and sentiments,  I picked the window diecut and then a couple sentiments.

Then I started laying down some of the flowers and also added some leaf dicuts from the Fabscraps paper pack.

My last step was to flick some ink spray from my stash all over the card.

So get your paper punches out and create quick and easy greeting cards!

I hope you get a chance to purchase this card making kit,  so many options!
